Susanna

Susanna, come over
get down to the river
get rid off your clothes
my lovely daughter
get into the water


it's perfect, it's cool
sun has been hot
sun has been cruel


Oh Susanna
get wet
oh Susanna 
get wet
yeah Susanna
get wet
what more can an old man's heart take 
until he sees you and it will break


Go deep in the water
it sparkles all over
like diamonds like pearls
my beautiful daughter


you feel that they watch you
you don't know what you got to do
but you have to , you have to


Oh Susanna 
get wet 
oh Susanna 
get wet
yeah Susanna
get wet 
what more can an old man's heart take
until he sees you and it will break 


Like Venus in the ocean
your body keeps in motion
and even god holds his breath


Dieses Lied handelt von der apokryphischen Geschichte der " Susanna im Bade ", die aufgrund übler Nachrede ältlicher Lustmolche zur Hure abgestempelt wird. Dabei nahm sie in aller Unschuld ein Bad und wurde dabei heimlich beobachtet. Aber wer weiß...vielleicht hat sie es doch gemerkt und hingenommen...
This song is about a story taken from the Apocrypha, Susanna in the Bath, who is accused by the Elder for inappropriate behaviour. But this is of course untrue, she just took a bath and was observed by some elder men who lusted for her. But maybe she knew it and just accepted it...
